Consistency is not always the best answer. Sure, maybe a 4/4 structure with some generic chords and some standard lyrics may get you playing time on the radio, but it won’t “set you apart” (wink, wink) from the rest. For Vancouver based band We Are The City, they make it their goal to be as random, as spontaneous, as impromptu as possible, in an organized fashion of course.
“Legs Give Out” from their newly released LP Violent, is as spontaneous as it gets. That little lyrical excerpt where they sing “set me apart…set’s me apart”, is so oddly compelling, glad to hear that Canadian music is still going strong
